Consultation outcome: Papanui Slow Speed Neighbourhood

The Council has today approved speed reductions in the Papanui area, following public consultation and a recommendation from the Community Board.

Our Board recommendations for the Papanui Slow Speed Neighbourhood were accepted by Council today. Check out the map below for what this means – the yellow line areas will drop to 30km/hr, the dotted yellow will be variable (during school drop-off/pick up times) 30km/hr, and the blue will drop to 40km/hr.

The consultation feedback on this was very strongly in favour of the proposal, and it was extended out from Mays Rd to Innes Rd as a result of consultation. It’s good to note that these areas will be monitored to assess the impacts of the speed changes, and that council staff are working with police on how best to enforce the changes.
